ALKIMOS boy Scott Guerini (10) is preparing to host a fundraising quiz this weekend after completing his third marathon walk at the start of the holidays.

On July 2, Scott and his brother Damien (7) did Scott’s Great Walk for Telethon to Southern Cross, where their family has a farm.

It was Scott’s seventh walk and third at a marathon distance, but the first time Damien attempted to walk the full distance too.

“He was setting a cracking pace and was set to smash last year’s time but Damien couldn’t keep up so Scott decided to give up on beating his time and slow down so Damien could finish,” mother Nicole said. “It took them 12½ hours.”

To continue their fundraising efforts, the family will hold a quiz at the Currambine Community Centre on July 16. Tickets cost $25 per person, with tables of 10, and can be booked online at trybooking.com/Booking/Booking-Event Summary.aspx?eid=208500&embed=208500
